Twenty Shades Of Blue – Blue Blue Water

Recently, looking at my painting of Oregon shore, I was asking myself how many times I’ve painted the water, waters of an ocean, lakes, sea or river? 
And even though the answer was MANY.. I was curious to see the difference in the shades of blue; the blue blue water.

Water for me has some personal almost human qualities. The colors depend on the time of the the day, the light, the shadows; and, of course, the artist’s mood, time put into painting, and  professional choice of the color.

And here are just a few waters painted in the different places at different times. It is interesting to see these fragments in one post close to each other, with almost no surrounding background/foreground interruptions 
(if curious to see the full painting, just click on the image or the name of the artwork).

And, much more alarming waves of the waters when the girl “grows up”, and comes to visit ocean again.

I have to admit, painting the waters next to the Golden Gate Bridge seems to be my favorite thing now. 
Here are the waves near Golden Gate Bridge San Francisco Bay from Fort Point point of view:

Realism in watercolors
Point Bonita has different point of view to Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay. Lifted up fog just revealed graceful sailboats:

Soothing waters of the Bay reflecting the Golden Gate Bridge, is quite rare event:

Impressionistic green reflections of impressionistic waters in Water Lilies painting:

And speaking of Impressionism, the Fall Reflections certainly colored those waters in Red, Yellow, Green, and Orange:

If I were a poet I would write a poem devoted to Water; but, I am the Artist and I will keep painting Miss Water in all her shades of blue
